Liquid & Powder Soy Lecithin
National Lecithin is a trusted supplier of soy lecithin. Many industries, including food and cosmetic production, take advantage of soy lecithin. Not only is it good for the body, it also gives products a uniform consistency that consumers have come to expect.
While lecithin is naturally found in soybeans, some extractors use harsh chemical solvents in their processes. Our process creates the healthiest, most beneficial soy lecithin without the use of any chemicals. Not only does this give your products a beautiful, uniform consistency, it also increases shelf life, flavor, and more.
What is Soy Lecithin?
Soy lecithin is one of the most common additives in food and drinks. It’s a mixture of phospholipids and oils derived from soybean oil. Lecithin contains many healthy ingredients including vitamins, good fatty acids and choline.
The Benefits of Soybean Lecithin
Soy Lecithin contains many nutritional components such as Vitamin E and K, Omega-3 fatty acids and choline. Soy-allergic consumers are still able to consume this type of lecithin since only trace amounts of soy protein are left behind after the extracting process. If you want to reap the benefits of soy lecithin, always go for the organic option over one that’s genetically modified.
Liquid and Powder Options Available
We sell and ship both liquid soy lecithin and soy lecithin powder. Either option is a great emulsifier and stabilizer in the creation of a wide variety of products, including cosmetics and confections.
Liquid soy lecithin is particularly helpful in the production of chocolates, cheese, margarine and salad dressing—as an added bonus, it reduces the cholesterol levels of these products. In powdered form, soy lecithin is water-soluble and helps fat and water stay together. It’s excellent for cooking and baking and for creating powdered foods and drinks.
